The Importance of Professional Hotel Fire Restoration

A fire is a scary situation for hotel and motel owners. Beyond the safety of your guests and employees, there are many ways in which your property can sustain heavy damage. If you have sprinklers in your business, you may be dealing with water damage in addition to fire damage. This complex situation can be extremely expensive to repair if you don’t get the right help

In this article, we will discuss some of the common causes of fires in hotels and motels, how you can prevent them, and how to get the right help, right away, if you are dealing with fire and water damage at your business.

Causes and Prevention Ideas for Hotel and Motel Fires

Accidental Fires

On average, about 10% of fires are unintentional or caused by accidents. After all, accidents happen, so this isn’t a huge surprise. Lit cigarettes, candles, improperly wired electrical devices, daisy-chained extension cords, and heating equipment placed too close to the wall are just some of the ways in which accidental fires can happen. The good news is that these are easy to avoid by simply training all employees on proper fire safety regulations.

Consider having regular staff meetings to go over all necessary safety precautions in the event of a fire. Be sure to schedule regular fire drills to ensure your staff is prepared.

Appliance or Electrical Malfunction

Around 30% of workplace fires start in the kitchen and are caused by either human error or faulty appliances. When hiring a new employee, give an extensive tour of the kitchen. Make sure all staff are familiarized with all safety procedures while interacting with these appliances.

Older buildings tend to have a higher risk for workplace fires because of faulty wiring. You should regularly have your wiring inspected if your business is in an older building. Routine inspections can help ensure the old wiring won’t cause a fire.

Arson or Intentional Fires

Intentionally set fires are hard to predict and can be difficult to protect your building from. Arson results in the highest number of fire-related deaths, and arsonists usually target trash cans, dumpsters, and parking garages for spots to ignite the fire. Since you can’t predict when this will happen, you can be proactive in keeping your building safe by regularly emptying trash cans and keeping your dumpster locked. Most arson fires take place between 3 pm and midnight, so it may be worth installing motion-detected cameras and floodlights in an attempt to deter arsonists.

Time Is of the Essence after a Hotel Fire

No matter the cause, you need to start addressing the damage caused by a fire at your Montant hotel or motel right away. The longer your property goes without restoring damage caused by fire, soot, smoke, and extinguishing methods, the more income your business will lose. The main goal of a hotel or motel is to have a fast turnaround for rooms to accommodate guests. This process will be inhibited if you do not seek out a restoration professional as soon as you can following a fire

Waiting to get professional clean-up help can lead to bigger problems like mold and structural issues. Superficial damage that could be affordably restored right away may become permanent damage that needs to be replaced at a greater cost.
